Project Information

This serving tray features a panel with veneered panel fashioned in the style of Piet Mondrian, a Dutch artist from the early 20th century. This seemingly abstract arrangement is actually a complex mathematical layout, where the calculator is the most important tool in this build. The veneer is 1/16" thick died veneer purchased from Roarockit in Toronto, designed for skateboard builders. The thicker veneer makes it much easier to layup a complex piece with over 50 individual pieces of veneer.

The panel is captured in a nice curly maple dovetailed frame designed as a serving tray.

Richard, what a lovely idea and beautiful tray. It really is high art. Well done. Should you ever want to try putting your tray sides at a 22 1/2 degree angle here is a way to do it. Your art project sure looks nice and the 90 degree angle is probably best for that application.
